Contra dance



BAR HARBOR — The Jesup Memorial Library’s monthly contra dance, featuring the Big Moose Band with caller Chrissy Fowler, will be held on Saturday, Nov. 23.

A free family dance begins at 6:30 p.m.; this is a chance for beginners to learn the steps and dancers can brush up on their contra dance knowledge.

From 7:30 p.m. on there is an $8 requested donation per person, or $25 per family. There is no cover charge for children under 12.

“Contra dancing is easy to learn and Fowler will teach dancers all the moves they need to know,” organizers said. “You do not need a partner to dance and everyone is invited to join in on the fun.”

The Big Moose Band features local musicians including Ruth Grierson, Keith Davis, Jim Vekasi, Charlie Richardson, Fred Benson, Ed Damm and Anne Damm, among others.
